UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre has looked unbeatable as of late, coming back from a serious knee injury to put on fairly one-sided performances against Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz. Now, with an overall record of 24-2 and eleven straight wins, St-Pierre seems to be running out of interesting options at 170 pounds.

However, GSP’s primary coach ”“ Firas Zahabi ”“ doesn’t see that being the case. In fact, as far as the TriStar MMA guru is concerned, St-Pierre will always have challenges out there in his division no matter how dominant he may appear to be.

Zahabi recently told Sherdog Radio:

“They always say that. They’ve been saying that since the B.J. Penn fight at UFC 94. ”˜There’s nobody else, there’s nobody else.’ There’s always a guy that pops up. Jake Ellenberger looked great, and then there’s going to be another guy. There’s Demian Maia. Maia’s on a win streak. There’s always an up-and-comer. You can’t forget that every time there’s a show, the deck gets shuffled. That’s why I don’t really believe there’s nobody else. Look at Robbie Lawler, for instance. He had a tremendous win. Very impressive win. That guy can hit you with one punch and it’s over. Same thing with Jake Ellenberger, same thing with Johny Hendricks.

“There are so many studs out there. Tomorrow, when you run out of them, the next day you’ll find a new guy with a great performance, like Erick Silva, for instance. I’m sure he’s going to go on a winning streak. He just lost to Jon Fitch. I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins three, four fights in a row. I wouldn’t be surprised at all. It wouldn’t shock me the least bit, and he could become a #1 contender. There’s always going to be another guy. There’s too many good guys out there. I think it’s a myth that the division can be cleaned out.”
